Easy Step by Step Guide on How to Prepare Lasagne

I often get requests and queries on ‘How to Prepare Lasagne’.  I believe, all a home chef needs to know, is the basic idea of it, and you build on that and make the lasagne your own each time.  Fillings options are wide range, and each will produce a different outcome in flavour/taste.

Here I have put together my STEP BY STEP guide, on how I go about preparing lasagne in my kitchen, and I do hope this is useful for you too.  Please do take a moment to rate this post further down the bloc post and I look forward to seeing and hearing your feedbacks.

  • Prepare your Meat filling (or a vegetarian option)
  • Prepare Extra White Sauce (with about 1 litre milk, for a large oven casserole)
  • Spray large casserole with non stick spray
  • Have your Store bought lasagne sheets ready, No Need to pre-boil them.
  • Begin Layering... Start with a spoon or 2 of white sauce, spread across casserole. 
  • Layer the lasagne sheets across the casserole, on top of white sauce.
  • Now spread on your filling of choice
  • Drizzle on more white sauce
  • Follow by another layer of Lasagne sheets
  • Keep repeating steps, until you reach 3/4 way up casserole
  • Always end with a layer of White Sauce
  • At this stage, Keep the casserole in refrigerator for 30 minutes,  then pre-heat oven to moderate.
  • Bake Lasagne for 30-40 minutes
  • Take care, It will bubble as it cooks through.  (*tip, Add the casserole dish on top of a tray covered with foil, for easier cleaning if need be.*)
  • Top Lasagne with Grated cheese, either Cheddar/Gouda or Mozzarella. 
  • When cheese is melted and golden in colour, Remove Lasagne from oven, and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes, before serving. 
  • Serve with a side of salad and /or garlic bread.

Additional Notes by Foodeva Marsay
~ Other Filling options for  Lasagne:
 * Mince (curry format or a little saucy),
 * Roasted vegetables also makes a great vegetarian option, as well as Spinach and Feta.
~ Together with the meat filling, you can also layer some roasted vegetables as well.
~ You may use a tomato based sauce instead of White sauce.
~ For a healthier version,  use Slices of eggplants OR slices of Baby Marrow/Courgettes.
~ There is no need to pre-boil Lasagne sheets, as it absorbs moisture whilst it rests before baking, and on the 2nd rest after baking. It will soften.
~ To make Individual rolled up servings of Lasagne, then Pre-boil the Lasagne sheets Before using. For this, no need to rest before baking.
